Painted Spear Shaft

Postby Tetardd » Thu Nov 08, 2018 5:49 pm

Hi,

Is there any evidence in manuscripts that spear shaft may have been painted to the heraldic colour of the lord? I'm interested primarily in 13th century but any medieval sub-period is also interesting.

It's frequent in reenactor circles but is it a reenactorism?

Thanks,
David.
